    Bergdahl expected back in U.S. on Friday: official



    (Reuters) - U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, held five years as a Taliban prisoner of war before being released on May 31, will return to the United States on Friday after receiving care at a military hospital in Germany, a senior defense official said on Thursday.

    Bergdahl, released in a prisoner swap for five Taliban leaders held at Guantanamo, was expected to be sent to a military hospital in San Antonio for further treatment. His release sparked a political uproar because the administration did not notify Congress beforehand.

    Sometime after the mid-term elections.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I would assume sometime after a psychological evaluation is made on him. War is hell.

    It does sound like he has psychological problems.

    I don't think he can get around being charged. He left a well reasoned letter stating his reason for deserting. Maybe he has problems AFTER being captured, but certainly not before. The mere fact that you desert does not mean you have emotional problems. Hell, Obama has been selling out this country for 6 years. What are HIS emotional problems? Obama doesn't have emotional problems. He's a traitor.

    Supposedly Bergdahl was let go by the Coast Guard before he joined the army.

    Barack Obama is YOUR President and will continue to be YOUR President for the next 2 and a half years - and then Hillary Clinton will be YOUR President for the next EIGHT years - so live with it.

    And you are psychic? I don't think so. Any number of things could happen to make Obama NOT my president, and Hillary has had a stroke. Go ahead, vote for a brain damaged candidate. Oh, wait. You already did that!

    As long as the Republicans continue to alienate blacks, Latinos, women, gays, immigrants, etc., they will continue to lose. When, or if, they ever lose the influences of the Tea Party and the Evangelicals, THEN they will get the White House back. Until then, you and your "buddies" can continue to ridicule the winners. You will have, AT LEAST, 10 more years to do so.

    This is my last comment on this - I do not wish to derail this thread.
